Internet gremlins strike again with bizarre business opportunity advert

Fine Gael's internet gremlins struck again last night when the party managed to promote doing business in the Eastern European country of Armenia.

Enda Kenny's new line-up of candidates on the party website was followed by a file advertising: 'Explore your professional opportunity by a visit: New Armenian Business and Jobs Directories'.

Fine Gael's website was hacked a fortnight ago and has been the subject of plenty of commentary. Meanwhile, Fianna Fail attempted to increase the pressure on Mr Kenny by taking out a 'Google AdWords' advertisement.

It means that every person who types in phrases such as "leaders' debate" into the Google search engine will see a Fianna Fail ad saying "This is a once-in-a-generation election. It deserves real debate" and a link directing them to letters sent by Micheal Martin to Mr Kenny.
